Community Members Celebrate the Big Read with Blackout Poetry

To celebrate poetry with this year's NEA Big Read Lakeshore title, community members met at the library to learn about and write blackout poetry. Check out some of their work below!

Want to try it yourself? Pick up a Blackout Poetry Take & Make kit from either Herrick branch from November 8-13 (while supplies last) and look through our Beginner's Guide to Creating Blackout Poetry for more ideas and examples.
